Heart & Vascular Institute
1350 Walton Way
Augusta, GA 30901
Piedmont Augusta's Vascular Lab on the first floor of Piedmont Augusta's Heart & Vascular Institute features multiple treatment rooms and a large patient waiting room.
Typically, Vascular Lab patients undergo noninvasive tests using ultrasound imaging and Doppler to check for obstruction of arteries and veins, including atherosclerosis (plaque) and venous thrombosis (blood clots).
The Vascular Lab is fully accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories. Piedmont Augusta is the only hospital in the surrounding area to receive accreditation in five types of noninvasive vascular testing in which accreditation can be obtained.
Through the efforts of the vascular surgeons, neurologists and registered vascular technologists who practice at Piedmont Augusta, the Vascular Lab is recognized regionally as the premier center for noninvasive vascular diagnostics.
